GENERAL INFORMATION

Facial plasty is a procedure intended for giving the patient a younger facial appearance, by removing the excess part of the loose or sagging facial skin. The surgery to be performed does not stop aging but can turn the clock a little bit back and provides rejuvenation in your facial appearance. The aging time is returned back, but it continues to run.Some people need to have a second surgery 7-15 years later, while many others do not need. Face lift scar is not noticeable. However, it can be noticed when looked closely, and can be concealed with slight makeup. As people age, the traces of the gravity, the sun, and the stress of everyday life can be seen in their faces. Deep lines may occur between the mouth and nose; the chin line gets larger and laxer, and fat deposits may appear in the neck. Face lift cannot stop the aging process. Face lift surgery is removal of the patient's loosening or sagging facial skin to gain a younger facial appearance. The removal of excess oil is a process that fixes the findings of aging, such as the tension of the muscles and the skin stretching of the face and neck. The procedure does not stop aging, but actually reverses the clock, allowing rejuvenation of your face. Face lift operation can be done alone, or in conjunction with other surgical procedures such as forehead lift, blepharoplasty, or rhinoplasty. The best candidate for a face lift is a patient with elastic skin and strong bones, whose neck skin have begun to sag. Most of the patients are aged 45-60 years. Face lift makes you younger and fresher, and improves your self-confidence. Some patients may require surgery again after 7-15 years, and many patients do not need a second face lift. The scars of the face lift surgery can only be noticed with a very close look and may be hidden with a slight makeup.

Before deciding to have surgery, think about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon. When performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, face lifting poses a very low risk of complication. Anatomy, physical reactions, and healing rates of human vary and the results are unpredictable. The possible complications: Hematoma (blood build up under the skin that should be removed by the surgeon), injury to the nerves of the facial muscles (temporary), infection, and anesthetic reactions. If you smoke, you will be advised to quit smoking for ensuring successful surgical results. Since aspirin and certain anti-inflammatory drugs increase bleeding, such drugs will be discontinued a certain period of time before surgery. If your hair is too short, you can allow them to grow longer, to an extent that can cover the incision site during recovery period.
If the face lift performed alone, it takes a few hours; or if it is performed in conjunction with another surgical procedure, it may take longer. The locations of the incisions and the stages of the operation vary depending on the structure of your face and technique to be used by your surgeon. Incisions usually begin above the hairline, following the natural line in front of the ear (or the cartilage in front of the ear), curves behind the earlobe and runs toward the occipital region. A small incision can be made beneath the chin, if another surgery will be made in the neck, as well. Typically, the surgeon separates the skin from the underlying fat and muscle tissues. The adipose tissue is removed from the neck or is aspirated for correcting the contour. The surgeon then tightens the underlying muscle tissue, pulls the skin, and removes its excess part. Sutures protect the tissues and close the incisions. Staplers can be used on the scalp for this purpose. After surgery, a drain tube is placed under the skin behind the ear, with intent to drain the accumulated blood. The surgeon can wrap the head with cotton and bandages, in order to prevent swelling and bruising.
Mini Face Lift İs a simplified version of the face lift made with a much less incision. It is the ideal treatment for patients who have intense sagging in the cheek and jaw areas. It is insufficient for the patients complaining of neck and forehead regions. Face Lift Neck Lift İs an operation that is applied to prevent and eliminate signs of aging in both the face and neck areas with more dense and wider incisions.
After surgery, you will be hospitalized for 1 or 2 days with painkillers prescribed by your surgeon. In this process, heavy or persistent pain, sudden swelling of your face should be reported to your surgeon immediately. Some sense of the skin is quite normal; It will pass in a few weeks or months. It is recommended to keep your head high if possible for a few days to take down the swelling. If a drain is placed during the surgery, it should be removed within one or two days. The head bandage is removed and the wound is dressed the next day. Do not be shocked when you see your pale and swollen face with bruises. Keep in mind that you will regain your normal appearance within a few weeks. A certain portion of the sutures will be removed five days after surgery. Healing of sutured points in the scalp may take a little longer time. Treat your face and hair delicately because your skin will be tightened and thinner. Your surgeon will give you more specific information about returning to your daily activities. The information will include the followings: Sex and heavy activities such as heavy housework and exercises should be avoided (walking and mild stretching would be good) for a period of at least two weeks, and alcohol, steam bath and sauna should be prohibited for several months. All these precautions improve the rest, and allow your body to spend all its energy for healing.
The dynamic hanger method is often used as an alternative to the face lift operation. According to your expectations and requests, your doctor will help you identify the most appropriate operation for you. In addition to the dynamic hanger method, it is possible to produce solutions with fill applications that will make you happy more simply but in shorter duration.
İf you are aware of the fact that the results will not appear immediately, you will be happy with your face lift surgery. You may feel you skin dry and rough for a few months. Men may find new places to shave, because of the changes in the locations of the skin (behind the ear and neck). You will have new scars but they will be hidden in the scalp or the natural lines. Such scars will gradually fade and diminish in the course of time. Having face lift surgery cannot stop aging. The tension caused by the surgery is not ever-lasting. In addition, your facial skin will keep aging. Perhaps, you will want to have one more face lift surgery after 5 to 10 years. But on the other hand, the effects of face lift surgery continue; and after years, you will continue to look better than your state that would be if you have not had face lift surgery.
Your face may initially look a little bit different. Your features may deteriorate due to the swelling, your facial expressions may look a little tense, and you may probably be doubtful about your scars. Some bruises may last for 2 to 3 weeks, and you may easily get tired. It is not surprising that some patients get disappointed and depressed at the beginning. In the third week, you will look and feel better. Most of patients can return to work within 10 to 15 days. If you need, you can camouflage the rest of the bruises with makeup.
The surgical scar begins in the scalp, follows the line in front of the ear, and then curves down and extends into the scalp again. Its part remaining in front of the ear is the only part that can be seen after surgery. Therefore, very fine sutures are used for ensuring minimal scar formation. Most of patients can return to work 1 to 2 weeks after surgery. However, patients should wait for 3 to 4 weeks for important social appointments. Bruising and swelling will occur in the face after surgery.
